Eosinophilic esophagitis

Is anyone familiar with eosinophilic esophagitis? The dr thinks my 5 month old has this and is going to schedule and endoscopy to check.

  • I am way too familiar with it. You should be very happy your son is getting evaluated for it so early. Most babies have to wait well past their 1st year to get diagnosed, simply because most Peds aren't familiar with it. My son was diagnosed at 15 months but it took an entire YEAR of testing to figure it out. He has a feeding tube because of how long he was undiagnosed. Feel free to message me any questions/comments/concerns.
